May Numbers

Remember that "mere" 3% increase in the April 2016 from April 2015 murders? Someone ran the May numbers for us so far:
  • The first five days of May 2013 - 4 homicides
  • The first five days of May 2014 - 6 homicides
  • The first five days of May 2015 - 7 homicides
  • The first five days of May 2016 - 10 homicides
Oops.

And how did May end?
  • May 2013 - 44 homicides
  • May 2014 - 41 homicides
  • May 2015 - 48 homicides
  • May 2016 - in progress
That the trouble with running around claiming "trends" based on a snapshot - one bad month, or one bad weekend, can make you look like a moron.

Someone in the media, I will ask Eddie this question if I can...

•The first five days of May 2013 - 4 homicides >How many sworn officers of all ranks did the CPD have at that time?

•The first five days of May 2014 - 6 homicides >Same question
•The first five days of May 2015 - 7 homicides >Same Question
•The first five days of May 2016 - 10 homicides >Same Question

And how many are there today?

Note to Superintendent Eddie Johnson: Please have answers available in hard numbers to the question>>

How many sworn officers of all ranks were employed by the Chicago Police Department in 2011 when Mayor Emanuel started and how many are there today?

I hope the thugs and bangers show some respect for their Mothers on Sunday.

A day without violence would be wonderful.

In hindsight, April may have just thwarted the will of the people. May is currently pacing towards its historic mid-to-upper 50s average plus another 300ish wounded.

WBBM, thats right, newsradio 78 they used to call it just before a minute for kids segment (which was only 50 seconds; rip off I am going to sue) reported in one of the homicide cases between the shooter you guys caught and the so called victim who had a low level of urban combat training or a lousy shot or both, there were a total of 80 arrests in their comnined histiories.

It is really hard to get worked up about violence in Chicago. I think the reason is violence is so anticipated it is acceptable. Most of us don't have a problem with these two with 80 prior arrests dead. Its too bad they could not have mutually shot each other in unison.

I just saw this article in The Daily Caller, it's about conservative scholar Heather McDonald. Some of her writings was posted here as a Thread not to long ago (about a month irrc).

Conservative Scholar Lays Out What The War On Cops Does To America’s Poor
by Ginni Thomas || May 8, 2016
Scholar and journalist Heather Mac Donald toiled away early on in her career at liberal enclaves, but through her street-level reporting on social services and the police, her worldview shifted away from liberal-progressive to conservative.

Her shift “was not some kind of epiphany from reading conservative principles,” but by hearing the voices of welfare recipients who told her “government aid becomes a narcotic,”
~~~snip~~~
Today, she is a widely-respected scholar and author with the Manhattan Institute and has a new book coming out in June called “The War on Cops.” (Link to book's page on Amazon)

Rahm brought McNumbnuts in as a HATCHETMAN and to fall on his sword to take the heat off of him and that is exactly what he did.

My question: is McCarthy still being paid somehow to keep his mouth shut?

That should go for the mommas also.

I remember a call on Mothers Day where a momma stabbed junior over him eating the last piece of bean pie.
